2 units on Tulsa +5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
The Tulsa Shock won all of six games last year, and out of the gate at 0-5 creates the perception that this team may win less this season. They are an improved team that has played four of five on the road where they will struggle. But in spite of that they have covered three of the five. Washington just simply doesn't make any effort on the defensive end. Currently through four games, they have allowed 85.5 points per game. That opens the door for a good offense especially at home to stick around in this one. The Shock is better off a loss at 5-1 ATS in their last six, dating back to the end of last year. The Mystics are just 1-5 ATS in their last six, so I'm going with Tulsa in this one.
